[p4] p4 uri

I currently maintain 2 SCM systems - an internal one and P4. To allow my 
scripts to process references to files in both SCM systems with standard 
URL classes (in python) I'm thinking of using a URL-like string to 
identify files in either system .i.e



with depot dropping out as the default. Which kinda seems wrong to me. It 
seems to me that the full path should be invoked. But  a full WWW-like URI 
would look like:


with hostname and protocol left out for defaults. Any background on why 
the two notations differ?

What do others do? Is there a recognised or defacto way of addressing p4 
resources similarly?
